The notice covers the south-central portion of the county – east of I-75 and south of Brandon Blvd. – including Riverview and Sun City Center. Approximately 95,000 people are effected.
Water pressure in the notice area dropped below the acceptable measurement, according to a release from Hillsborough County Water Resources.

People in the area are asked to boil water for at least one minute before drinking it or using it to cook. Residents are reminded to let the water run clear before washing clothes and to get rid of ice from automatic ice makers.
